    Question what are the symptoms of kidney problems?

    Hi, I am a bit suspicious that I have a kidney problem, but I don't know for sure. I have reaccuring, very severe bladder infections, about two a year, an they come on almost instantly. Last time I had one, a month or so ago, the doc suggested that I might have a misshaped kidney or baldder tube, whatever it is called. She sent me to a specialist, a urologist, but I couldn't get an appointment until next month. I have been inexplicably tiered, even when I sleep enough, and am not doing anything to cause such exhaution. I also have back pain in my lower back, but cannot tell if it is just muscualr, plus I had a severe hip injury a couple years ago, which might be causing back pain. I pee fairly often too, witholut alot of results...
    but, am I just being paranoid or is this a real concern?
    I am mostly worried about the fatige that has occured simultaniously with the bach ache. What is my problem?
    what are the symptoms of kidney irregularities?
    sorry that my q's are a little naive...

    what is intersistal cysistis? Is that just a bladder infection? I don't have any pain when I go pee or anything, just very achy back and soooooo tiere and how much I pee never equates with how urgent it feels, but it is not VERY often, just maybe like every hour or so. Also the pain is much more obvious on my right side.

    Re: what are the symptoms of kidney problems?

    Just read a good book on kidney problems and as far as the author is saying there are no clear symptoms and some people don't have any symptoms until their kidneys are so messed up they need emergency dialisys.
    Then I found one other doctor as saying that any unexplained increased urinary frequency is the start of kidney disease, long before other problems develop: like fluid retention, electrolit imbalance etc. The key word is unexplained and yours could be explained with infections.
    I have similar in that area around my right kidney is hurting me. I've had a number of tests done and so far nothing yet. Recently my left kidney has started hurting. I also hope this is not kidney disease as I also had increased frequency 6 months ago. UNEXPLAINED!!!
